From the Blackpool Magic Convention Facebook page..
The convention has expanded and morphed into an event that no-one could have possibly imagined only a few years ago and it’s all thanks to you!
This year we’ve booked more acts and shows than ever before, expanding the fringe event with a series of one-man shows, including the UK Convention debut of Amazing Johnathan. A show that will be a very special one-off performance on the Saturday Night in The Spanish Hall.
Yet again, we’ve invested heavily in the technical aspect of the whole event, with upgraded video and lighting systems in all of the lecture theatres and rooms. The tech that we’re installing in The Opera House is bigger and better than ever before and we’re sure this will make the shows an even more spectacular and fun experience.
If you haven’t already registered, check out who we’ve booked and see just what you’re missing.
Numbers are already up on last year (which was a record), so come and join over 4,000 other like-minded people for a weekend of mind-blowing magic and fun…
